Aww man! tat was sad!... My old cell got drenched once. Take it to some moble service guy, tell him it fell in water etc.. he will clean it up nicely from inside, blow dry it etc etc... but lot of the damage will remain. It will work though..

That was very unfortunate LOL. What was your expression when he told you his phone was inside??!?!

I think it can be repaired. My cell was drenched too, but not to that extent it cost me around < Rs. 1000.

My phone survived the July 26 deluge. Tried turning it on too a gazillion times when it was wet. Dried it for 2 days, works like a charm. The less complicated the phone, the more chances it has of surviving abuse.

Ok been following this thread all day today and here's my take on this
First off its a 50-50 situation.. its your fault for dunking the bag into the pot and its your friends fault for carrying around his phone on holi in a bag.. I mean what kind of a jackass carries a phone when he know's he's going to get dunked with colour and water and stuff.. is he that important that he can't put his phone off and leave it home for a couple of hours when he goes out to play holi.
Having said that I hope for your sake it starts working again

My old 8310 fell in a bucket of water once, it didnt come on right away, i gave it the blow dryer treatment and then 2 days later it turned on magically!! God what all the phone went through (water, bouncing of the sidewalk numerous times, dropped ina a bus and returned!) Its 5 years old and my cousin still uses it.

I dunno if this may work or not.

flush your phone back again with the simcard.

still better, throw it in a far away lake/river/sea.

apply for theft insurance (if nokia still provides it)

u get a new phone

NO expression on my face, no emotions, it was like i did'nt even think anything. it was my instinct to just put the hand in pot n grab that poly bag. On the other hand my friend was stoned, he was standing still as if he had smoked 2-3 joints. after i took the phone to my room to dry he followed me n stood beside me, i asked him to turn off this cell, but he was so stoned he did not understand wat i said for the next 2 minutes.

my friend was carring his cell phone is his poly bag. not my cell phone. BTW i own nokia 1100 and i love it to the extent that i switch it off n lock it in poly bag during sudden rain.

seriously why did he carry his 15000rs cell in poly bag during holi, that too the poly bag was in his hands and not in pocket. Too bad i just solved my fight after 1 year and then i flush his cell . :-(

one of my friends also managed to dip his phone in the pot by accident - it was a 6600 - and it refused to switch on after that
he took it to a certain dealer in gaffar market in karol bagh and that guy took it apart piece by piece and dried everything with a hairdryer, put it together again and it switched on ....

cant say whether the same would work with your friends phone as well - but you can surely try out the gaffar market guys if nought else works ...

My Nokia 8310 suddenly conked out one day and I tool it to a Nokia Dealer in Hyd, he said looks like my phone was dropped in Sea Water, I was surprised the phone was bought in Dubai, I live in Bangalore and was in Hyd at that time and I am sure we never went closer than 300km from the sea shore, well he said I can use it as paper weight, luckily had someone travelling to dubai and it was serviced there with some part replacement which cost me Rs. 800 .

Hey, And I had a totally opposite incident yesterday !! We went to this party and my friend had kept his Nokia cell in a lil plastic packet but without a know on the top .. anyways during the course of the celebrations he ended up getting pushed into the pool which was full of color . As he enjoys the water he kept taking others into it as well ... About an Hr later he realised that the phone from his pocket was missing but the plastic pkt was still there -- PANIC buttin pressed .. back into the pool and as it was no use trying to dive in and try searching for it we all got into the lil pool and started the PHONE HUNT with our feet !!! Eventually we did find the phone .. and guess what -- The screen read .. 16 messages received -- lol .

Anyways we switched it off just incase there is any water inside .. put it to dry for 5 mins and back on ... Its working as if nothing happened to it at all !! Now thats why I luv Nokia .... !! So much time in water and yet working perfectly ...

Cheers

PS -- Sorry about ur friends phone though !!!
